Killing Joke - America

This must rank as one of the most sarcastic tracks of all time.

Frontman Jaz Coleman is a seriously scary individual (just look at those eyes) but unlike most in the music industry, he is deadly serious about his lyrics and his politics. He reformed Killing Joke in 2003 purely to rant about the Iraq invasion.

This video dates back to 1988, predating the first gulf war. The line; 'there were fireworks in the gulf, there was champagne at home' is particularly prescient.

The Uncle Sam antics are inspired. In fact the whole thing is serious fun. Enjoy.
